UbisoftÃ‚Â® announced that AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed Chronicles: China will be available Tuesday, April 21, in the UK for download on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC, and on Wednesday, April 22, on PlayStationÃ‚Â®4 computer entertainment system.
In 16th-century China the recently appointed Jiajing Emperor instigated a sudden and ruthless purge of all he felt were a danger to his newly acquired throne, including the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins. A young Assassin, Shao Jun, fled to the West to complete her training under the legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore in the animated short AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed: Embers and has returned, determined to restore the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
In AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed Chronicles: China, players pick up Shao JunÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s story as she returns to China hell-bent on revenge. Her story will take players across China, to famous locations including the Maijishan Grottoes, Port of Macau, The Forbidden City and The Great Wall. Armed with stealth, agility, and a combination of deadly weapons and equipment including a sharp and swift jian, a secret shoe blade and lethal rope darts and daggers, players will deliver payback to those who decimated the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
Developed by Climax Studios in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed Chronicles brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D. Brought to life by fusing the essence of Chinese 16th-century traditional brush strokes with more contemporary impressionistic styles, Shao JunÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s adventure will immerse players in a living painting as they traverse undetected across ChinaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s historical landmarks.
AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s CreedÃ‚Â® Chronicles: China will be followed by AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s CreedÃ‚Â® Chronicles: India and AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s CreedÃ‚Â® Chronicles: Russia, which will release separately and take players through the 19th-century Indian Sikh Empire and then through Russia, following the Red October Revolution.
